I’ll be joining the team coming week for a symposium in Switzerland. Give me a call if anything else is needed.
I don't understand this email. It was sent to an email address I have that is the target of a lot of spam (it's the address I use for my domain registration and as I never opted to “hide” that email address, it's gotten around to a lot of spam lists), although the “undisclosed recipients” kind of gives it away as spam anyway. The website exists (I checked DNS) but I have not visited the site, so I don't know of the customer ID or password actually work. A quick web search on the domain name has revealed a lot of suspicion about the website, and a search on “Sergio Rios” doesn't reveal anything either.
So I have to wonder—what's the angle here? What's the scam? How is this supposed to work?
